Cassia Tree Long Seed Pods ?

Dothan, AL(Zone 8b)

This is my first year growing my Cassia Tree. It is in bloom and these long bean like pods are hanging from the tree.Are these going to be the seeds ? If so when do I harvest them and how to I grow them from Seeds ?

thanks

Yes, the pods will have seeds in them. (It's like shelling peas or beans). I let the pod turn brown on the plant.

I haven't grow any from seed, so someone else will have to tell you how they did it. I would just throw alittle soil over them in a pot, and keep them misted, myself.

If it is like my cassia, you won't have to collect any seeds,,, it will grow a few underneath for you.

My pods are green,but not turning brown yet.About how long does it take ? I will be going out of town in a couple of weeks.With my luck they will seed while I am away.

Slip a old knee high over the pod, or some kind of netting. : )

I will try the knee high ,that sounds like a good idea.

It's been over three weeks and the pods are still green.Does anyone have an idea o how long it takes?

They are starting to swell and get soft so maybe soon I will have seeds for trade.

Mine have been brown for about 2 weeks now. Maybe yours will follow, soon. : )

I checked today and they are also getting plump and a few brown ones.Boy the seed pods sure are heavy and my tree limbs are bending. Has anyone grown them from seeds ? Please take a look at the photo and see if you can tell me what kind is it.The photo was taken when it just started to bloom at the end of summer.
